Egyptian Gods and Goddesses

By Jemma, Ally and Seamus.



  • Horus was the god of the sky he was probably most well known as the protector of the ruler of Egypt. The Egyptians believe that the pharaoh was the living Horus. The ancient Egyptians had many different beliefs about the god Horus, one of the most common beliefs was that Horus was the son of Isis and Osiris. After Osiris was murdered by his brother Seth, Horus fought with Seth for the throne of Egypt. In this battle Horus lost one of his eyes. The eye was restored to him and he became a symbol of protection for the ancient Egyptians. After this battle Horus was chosen to be the ruler of the world of the living.


  • Seth is the god of chaos. Seth represented everything that threatened harmony in Egypt. He was also the brother of Osiris and Isis, as well as the brother/husband of Nepthys. He murdered Osiris and after battled Horus (his nephew) to be the ruler of the living. He also controlled storm and violence. Seth was not always bad. He helped Ra (the god of the sun) fight the snake Apep. He killed Osiris by tricking him into a coffin and throwing it into the Nile. Osiris’s wife found Osiris’s body, and hid it away from Seth so she could bury it properly. But Seth found the body and cut it up into pieces and scattered it along the Nile River.


  • Ma’at was the goddess of truth, justice and harmony. She was the wife of Thoth who was the god of wisdom. Both Ma’at and Thoth help at the weighing of the heart. Ma’at was the daughter of Ra (god of the sun) she was a associated with the balance of things on earth. The vizier (chief judge) who was in charge of the law courts was known as the priest of Ma’at. The father of Ma’at was An ostrich plume.


  • Ra was the god of the sun and he was the most important god of all. The ancient Egyptians believed that Ra was swallowed every night by the sky goddess Nut, and was reborn every morning. The ancient Egyptians also believed that he travelled through the underworld at night. In the underworld, Ra appeared as a man with the head of a ram. He sailed across the heavens in a boat called the ‘Barque of millions of years.’during the day Ra had to fight his chief enemy, a snake called Apep. He was helped by other gods such as Seth and Bastet.


  • Sekmet has two sides one was Hathor who was the goddess of joy, motherhood, and love. She was also the goddess of the sun. On the other side she was Sekmet, the eye of Ra, the destructive sun Goddess. The Egyptians knew that the sun brought life, but they also knew that the desert sun could kill you. Ra the sun god was angry with mankind, because they laughed at him. He said that he’d send down his anger as Sekmet, the Eye of Ra. She went down to earth, killing men, and drinking their blood. She started to frighten Ra, who only wanted o punish mankind, not destroy them all. So he dyed some beer red so she would think it was blood, and she drank it all and got drunk and went to sleep. When she woke up Ra persuaded her to stop killing mankind.


  • Osiris was the god of the dead. He was also the ruler of the underworld. Osiris was the brother/husband of Isis, and was also the brother of Nepthys and Seth. Osiris ruled over the Egyptians and taught them farming. His brother Seth has always hated him and wanted to kill him. Seth made a beautiful box, like a coffin, made to the exact measurements of Osiris. The Seth invited Osiris and other people to a great feast. When everyone had finished eating, Seth displayed the box, and said that he’d give it to anyone who fitted inside. Everyone tried, but only Osiris fitted. While he was inside, Seth and his friends quickly slammed on the lid and threw the box into the Nile river.
